Homework for the holidays

Every time classes get a lit-
tle emptier, like they did this
week for to the Jewish holiday
of Yom Kippur, questions arise
about the University's policy
on religious observances and
other holidays.
There are more than 35 holi-
days, both religious and other-
wise, listed on the University
Office of the Provost's website
that conflict with University
class schedule.
During the year, classes are
canceled for only two holidays:
Thanksgiving and Martin
Luther King Jr. Day.
The University's schedul-
ing policy doesn't observe
religious holidays, though it
does attempt to aid students in
avoiding any negative conse-
quences of missing class.

"Although the University of
Michigan, as an institution,
does not observe religious
holidays, it has long been the
University's policy that every
reasonable effort should be
made to help students avoid
negative academic conse-
quences when their religious
obligations conflict with aca-
demic requirements," the pol-
icy reads.
Students are responsible for
making up any missed assign-
ments.
If the holiday falls on an
exam or test day, the student
must inform the faculty mem-
ber before the term's drop/add
deadline in order to make up
the test at a later date without
penalty. It is up to the profes-
sor to determine a "reasonable

alternative opportunity" when
it comes to make-up work.
When a student has a dis-
pute with a professor over
missing class for a religious
observance, the student can
contact the department chair.
If the matter is still unre-
solved it is referred to the
Dean of the School or the Uni-
versity's Ombudsperson. The
University provost has the
final say.
Holidays many students
celebrate that take place dur-
ing the academic year include:
Rosh Hashanah in the end of
September, Yom Kippur in
October, Chinese New Year in
the end of January, Good Fri-
day and Baisakhi in April, and
Ascension Day in May.

ited to Christine Hucal.

edition of the Daily (A
Mich. GOP in spat after
McCain withdrawal) said
Justin Zatkoff sent an e-mail
message to the state GOP and
numerous media outlets. Zat-
koff wrote to Dan Tollis, who
then forwarded the message
to those groups.
" The roster in yesterday's
Faceoff section omitted
senior forward Danny Fardig

$26,000 on the basis of typos

reported. This is the second
time lawyer Brian Puricelli
has been fined for his sloppy
filings. In 2004, another judge
did the same thing.
